Alison said: “This is a tremendous opportunity for me. Birdsall & Snowball have an excellent reputation as a first-class law firm across Yorkshire and I am honoured to have been asked to lead their new family law department.

“I completely understand that trying to resolve family issues can be very emotive and worrying, but my over-riding aim is to provide friendly and affordable expert advice and assistance to all my clients at what is often a very difficult time.”

“Evette Abbey, partner at Birdsall & Snowball, said: “We are delighted to welcome Alison to our team. She has a wealth of experience in family law and we are very pleased to be able to add a family law service to those legal services we already provide at our Scarborough office.”
